After climbing slab all summer and a little bit of crack, I've discoved that I really enjoy juggy overhangs. Might you be able to suggest some areas/routes where I can find more. I've been climbing mostly in Clear Creek, Summit, and Table Mountain with a few excursions to Penitente, Glenwood, and Moab. I'm climbing in the 10 range, but I am attempting some 11's. I'm open to solid pocket climbs as well. And places where I might be able to get some fall/winter climbing in. Josh Schutz

Awesome! I'll check it out on the way home from work (Copper Mtn). It's a bit chilly out but White Cliff's snow is pretty much gone right now. Josh Schutz

My suggestions:

In CCC; the first pitches of Too! and The Norwand at little eiger are good 5.10 jug hauls, but in the shade mostly. The Dog House is great for Winter sun (try Hot Dog, 11b, it's good for breaking into the juggy, strong low 11 grade). Of course, the Wall of Justice has some goodies too (mostly elevens and twelves though) try Officer Friendly, 11c (but more like 11a) if you haven't yet. It's short but fun. And Hanging Judge, 11b ish.

And, don't forget about Shelf Road. Tis the season.

While we're at it, anybody know how Ten Sleep climbs in the winter? Too cold to camp? etc...

Nice thread! I'm always trying to find more climbing like this for winter cragging.

Pockets, overhangs, winter warmth. Agree.

Some examples in your range:
"Heaven is Waiting" - steep, juggy, overhanging, 10+.
"Lick and a Promise" - steep, juggy, chimney to crack, 10b/c.
"Pink Torpedo" - steep, juggy, nice warm-up, 5.9+

If you like roofs, try "Super Guy," 11a, also in the Bank, classic.


But the best part at Shelf is that nice winter tan...

Clear Creek in general is good.

Dinosaur Rock and Der Zerkle area in Flatirons would be your best bet.

Independence Pass, but you'll have to wait til next summer.
